Jodie Comer Thinks Climate Change Catastrophe Is Looming and the World Isn't Ready

The 'Killing Eve' actress shares her opinions about climate change as she sees extreme weather is happening more often, adding that 'we're not prepared' for the looming disaster.

AceShowbiz - Jodie Comer is worried the world isn't prepared for looming climate change disasters. The "Killing Eve" actress, 30, stars as a terrified mum in her latest film "The End We Start From" who flees her London home with her newborn amid massive flooding.

Telling The Observer newspaper she has been noticing "endless amounts of rain" in London, Jodie said she consulted flood experts ahead of making the post-apocalyptic climate drama.

She said about their verdict on how Britain will be hit by climate change, "Sea levels are rising, rainfall is becoming more extreme. We are an island; things are going to go wrong and we're not prepared. We know what's happening."

"The End We Start From", which also stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Strong, already has nine nominations for the British Independent Film awards, and Baftas are expected to follow.

Jodie added she loved her role spotlights a woman as a hero instead of a man. She said, "What I love is that it's a woman who is the everyday hero - we always see men with a superhero quality facing this situation."

"But here it is a woman many will feel they know. She's not scaling buildings, or jumping over bridges. The story is deep-rooted in her psyche and emotion. It's refreshing."

The film is directed by Mahalia Belo, who won a 2017 British Academy Television Craft Award in the best breakthrough talent category for her work directing the television drama "Ellen".

She also directed psychological thriller "Requiem" and the TV adaption of Andrea Levy's novel about the last days of slavery in Jamaica, "The Long Song", both of which were shown in 2018.
